and (c) the final velocity of the spacecraft at time 7. In the y direction.Example 1 A Moving Spacecraft In the x direction.0 s. the spacecraft has an initial velocity component of +22 m/s and an acceleration of +24 m/s2. Find (a) x and vx. . (b) y and vy. the analogous quantities are +14 m/s and an acceleration of +12 m/s2.

Do this for x and y.Reasoning Strategy 1. Select the appropriate equation. When the motion is divided into segments. Keep in mind that there may be two possible answers to a kinematics problem. 5. 4. 3. Verify that the information contains values for at least three of the kinematic variables. remember that the final velocity of one segment is the initial velocity for the next. 2. 6. Make a drawing. Decide which directions are to be called positive (+) and negative (-). Write down the values that are given for any of the five kinematic variables associated with each direction. .

. A projectile is any object which once projected or dropped continues in motion by its own inertia and is influenced only by the downward force of gravity.What is a projectile? y A projectile is an object upon which the only force acting is gravity.

Projectile Motion and Inertia .

Projectile Motion y Two-dimensional motion of an object y Vertical y Horizontal .

Types of Projectile Motion y Horizontal y Motion of a ball rolling freely along a level surface y Horizontal velocity is ALWAYS constant y Vertical y Motion of a freely falling object y Force due to gravity y Vertical component of velocity changes with time y Parabolic y Path traced by an object accelerating only in the vertical direction while moving at constant horizontal velocity .
